Amish Custom Antique Reproduction Gun Cabinet

Amish Custom Antique Reproduction Gun Cabinet

Occasionally a client will come across a gun cabinet at another store, auction, or at a friends house that they full in love with but sadly aren’t able to purchase it at the time or can’t talk their friend into giving up their gun cabinet.  Luckily, here at The Wood Loft, we have the ability to take a customer’s picture or drawing and have a gun cabinet Amish custom made in the wood, style, and stain that our customer has always dreamed of.

That was the case with this gun cabinet.  Our customer came across a antique gun cabinet at an estate sale and sadly was outbid during the auctioning process.  Luckily he took quite a few pictures and using the photos he provided, measurements he required, and stain samples from other furniture in his house we were able to have the gun cabinet Amish custom crafted into an heirloom we are hoping he will treasure forever.

This gun cabinet was custom made using 100% sustainable hardwoods right here in the USA with Amish craftsmen using the pictures that the custom supplied to us.
Leather wrapped stock holders
The gun barrel support bar was crafted out of solid quarter sawn white oak and then topped with 100% genuine leather to protect the gun barrels from scratches.
Premium Leather Butt Holders and Barrel Rests
The gun butt rests were cut with increasing angles from center to the side to showcase the gun in multiple different angles and the gun barrel support was cut to accommodate the guns at different display angles.
Padded premium leather butt rests
Like the gun barrel rest, each of the gun butt support cutouts was lined with padding and then 100% genuine leather to provide protection and beautiful looks.
Full length columns on upper and lower gun cabinet
The gun cabinet was Amish custom crafted to match the full length upper and lower full columns.  Each of the columns was custom made out of solid quarter sawn white oak.  The accent appliques were installed on the front upper molding to match the photos of the Antique gun cabinet.

Along with the full length side glass, the base of this Amish custom gun cabinet was fitted with a flat panel side to accentuate the shaker mission look while still blending with the accents on the front of the gun cabinet.

The top two drawers of the Amish crafted gun cabinet was outfitted with leather lined angled inserts to allow pistol or long gun display.  Each gun cabinet drawer was equipped with a lock for safety.

Each of the drawer allowed for full extension when the pistols or long guns were in place and was reinforced to prevent any sagging that may occur with the added weight of multiple gun.

The floral accents were designs that were featured in the pictures that were sent to us from the estate auction and after quite a bit of hunting we were able to acquire four florets to match the original antique gun cabinet we were reproducing.
